Your 2015 Record Store Day ambassador makes so much sense: it's Dave Grohl.
The Foo Fighters frontman will act as the ambassador for the annual event, which takes place April 18, Consequence of Sound reports.
Grohl follows in the footsteps of Jack White, Chuck D, Iggy Pop and Ozzy Osbourne, all of whom have been ambassadors for the event in the past.
He accompanied the news with a four-minute video, talking about how "important it is to discover things at independent record stores and showing off the first record he ever bought.

99Rock Music News: Here's the Beck/Kanye West 'Loser' Mashup You Probably Didn't Know You Needed






By Shannon Carlin

Boy, we imagine right about now, Beck wishes he didn't have a song called "Loser."

DJ Steve Porter has managed to put all our feelings about this whole Kanye West calling out Beck's Album of the Year win at the GRAMMYs into one mashup of the Morning Phase singer's first hit "Loser."

Did we know we wanted this? No. Do we really need it? Probably not, but it is worth it to see Kim Kardashian's horrified and confused face as he stumps for Beyoncé once again.

Though, 'Ye probably didn't throw as much shade as Pharrell threw at Taylor Swift's dancing. Oh, we see you bae.

And no disrespect to Beck, but like Kanye, we had a few feelings on why Beyoncé deserved to win the prize too. Perhaps, you want to check it out.

By Jay Tilles @ Radio.com
Steve Buscemi makes a much funnier and weirder Christian Grey in this new Fifty Shades of Grey spoof.
With anticipation building for the film's Friday release, Boo Ya Pictures created their own version of the trailer.
Boo Ya, with its history of mashing up well-known films, inserted some of Buscemi's most classic characters into the Fifty Shades trailer, making him appear far more suave and dangerous than the film's real character, played by Jamie Dornan.

The Red Hot Chili Peppers promise new music this year. After a since-deleted tweet from Flea as to who will be producing their 2015 release, the band has now confirmed that Danger Mouse will have a hand in the process.

According to interviews with Chad Smith and Flea, the next album will be "super danceable" and "very different and unique."

In an interview with Rolling Stone in October, Flea said the band had written nearly 30 songs and plan to go on tour in 2015.

"We're nearly finished writing," he said. "We'll go in the studio sometime in the next couple of months."
In another interview with Rolling Stone, Chad Smith said the album was "shaping up good."

99Rock Music News: Modest Mouse Share New Song, Push Back Album Release Date



(Karl Walter/Getty Images for Coachella)


By Philip Cosores
Good news for people who love bad news: Modest Mouse have delayed their long-anticipated new album. But after waiting eight years since the Pacific Northwesterners last LP, We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank, a couple more weeks shouldn't be too much to bear.
As a bit of a peace offering, Modest Mouse have shared a third sampling from their upcoming sixth proper full-length. Titled "The Best Room," the track diverts from the recently shared ballad, "Coyotes," and goes back to the strutting rock swagger that the band is known for.
